Given the absolute crap that American car companies have tried to pawn off on Africa over the years, it's not surprising that American cars have a horrible name there. American cars had a nasty habit of dying out in the bush - which tends to be fatal for the passengers.

If I worked for DCX and wanted to try to sell cars there, I'd have to do the same thing.

Hi All-

Coming from a car manufacturer that has yet to install a decent transmission in their vehicles.

"German Engineering"

Does that mean the tailpipe leads into the vehicle?

Judging by the car, it must be "East" German engineering.

It appears European car design is gradually reverting back to the Isetta.

Some of the PR moves that Diamler-Chrysler has made over the past few months have been downright stupid. First the Dr. Z advertisements on TV and now something like this? I guess nobody told the Germans that a bunch of American good old boys who are looking for alternatives to homosexuality-promoting Ford might be wandering around Dodge showrooms.

Here's what we should write him:
Hey, Dr. Z...is that a real mustache, er...billboard? Ifit is...then maybe American Sales should be exactly what you predict on the boillboard. NOTHING.

How about them apples Z? Actors, jeez!

On the other hand modern American automotive paint is the all time favorite for Africans when it comes to huffing.

They love the stuff ~ all the time trying to get permission to mail it too.

And those guys have MJ growing wild everywhere.
